FO Friday

Sorry for being MIA for so long!  I’ve been busy, busy with house remodeling (it’s done now!) and holiday goings on, and getting back into the homeschool swing.

I actually have a couple of things to show you today!

First, I finished my Spectra:


Pattern:  Spectra by Stephen West
Yarn:  Knit Picks Capretta in Platinum for the outer edge, and my own handspun for the inner wedges (handspun is a BBFL from Gale’s Art)
Needles:  US 4 (I think!)
Started:  September 16, 2012
Finished:  January 16, 2013
Finished size – about 64 inches long (before blocking, we’ll see how long it is once it’s been blocked!)

It still needs to be blocked.  I evidently casted on much more tightly than I bound off, because the starting edge is much smaller than the finished end!  Oh well.  A good blocking will add to the drape anyway.  Once I frogged it back (since I was forgetting to do the short rows in between the blocks) it went much better!  I’m very happy with it.

And now, to show you my BIG FO for this week:


That’s right, I’m ready to mail in my Master Knitter Level 2 binder!!!!!!!

My oldest son modeling the level 2 vest I designed.
Swatches for Level 2
All the swatches for Level 2
Level 2
That’s one stuffed binder!!

I just have to finish up the history report (it’s almost done as I type this!) and get it proof-read, and then I’ll mail it off tomorrow morning!  It feel so very, very good to be at the finish line of this level!!  I’m beside myself!!

So, keep your fingers crossed for me that I won’t have many re-dos, and that I pass Level 2 soon! 🙂

Happy Knitting!!  (I almost don’t know what to do with myself now that it’s done…)
